Evergreen messages by
Swami Chinmayananda

The day you take up the policy of giving love instead of demanding it - that day you will have rewritten your entire future destiny.

The Chinmaya Mission Pledge
We stand as one family,
bound to each other,
with love and respect.

We serve as an army,
courageous and disciplined,

ever ready to fight against,
all low tendencies and false values,
within and without us.

We live honestly the noble life of
sacrifice and service,

producing more than
what we consume,

and giving more than what we take.
We seek the Lord’s Grace
to keep us on the path of
virtue, courage and wisdom.

May Thy grace and blessings flow
through us to the world around us.
We believe that
the service of our country

is the service of the Lord of Lords,
And the devotion to the people is
the devotion to the Supreme Self.
We know our responsibilities,
give us the ability and the
courage to fulfill them.


Chinmaya Mission Pledge.

t2Swami Tapovan Maharaj of Uttarkashi was the "Source" wherefrom Swami Chinmayananda (The Founder of the Chinmaya Movement) acquired the Knowledge of Vedanta (Science of Religion).

Swami Tapovan was himself the ideal who had personally understood (through deep study, dispassion and contemplation) the relationship between the biological processes of the body and the human psyche.

In a spirit of deep renunciation, the infinitely gentle poet in him, saw Humanity and Nature as one vast "plant", needing only "Love" for its highest fulfillment.

Intimate communion with Nature (while he walked peaks and valleys of the Himalayas for countless years), gave Swami Tapovan the boundless spiritual reverence. He revealed Nature's secrets in his "travelogue" in two Sanskrit masterpieces, "Himagiri Viharam" and "Kailasa Yatra".

The masterpiece, without a doubt, is "Ishwara Darshan", which is his autobiographical "sketch" - it is an absorbing account of a search for the Truth .. Its scientific clarity is subtle, because the treatise gives insight into how the saints of the East attain self mastery.



The Chinmaya Movement

In December 1951 in Pune, India, the great saint, Swami Chinmayananda delivered his first public address on Vedanta. That was the start of the dynamic 'Chinmaya Movement', which aimed at spreading the man-making knowledge of Vedanta to all corners of India and the world. Chinmaya Mission was formed in 1953 by devotees of Swami Chinmayananda to give organizational structure and cohesiveness to the work and the activities being initiated by H.H. Swami Chinmayananda.

Over the years, Chinmaya Mission grew into a worldwide organization. Today, it is involved in:

Spreading the sublime knowledge of Vedanta - Vedanta is the core of Hindu philosophy. In fact, it is a universal science of life. A science which is relevant to all people everywhere, whatever their faith. An understanding of Vedanta would inspire people to understand their own faith (whichever it may be) better. Therefore, although Chinmaya Mission is a Hindu spiritual organization, it does not seek to change or convert anyone's beliefs. Chinmaya Mission's stated mission is: "to provide to individuals, from any background, the wisdom of Vedanta and the practical means for spiritual growth and happiness, enabling them to become positive contributors to society".

Re-invigorating Indian culture - Chinmaya Mission is also involved in re-invigorating Indian culture in general. The Mission has forums for different age groups and for professionals, with each forum engaged in understanding and promoting Indian culture and spirituality. The Mission also organizes and promotes Indian music, dance, drama, art and literature. It also runs many temples, carries out research into Indian scriptures, traditions, rituals and languages, and has a vibrant publications division so that spiritual and cultural books, periodicals, audio tapes, video tapes and photographs may reach as many people as possible.

Doing extensive social service - Chinmaya Mission is also actively involved in social services focussing especially on disadvantaged and underprivileged people. Hundreds of thousands of people benefit from the Mission's schools, colleges, hospitals, diagnostic centres, old age homes and rural village development projects. "To give maximum happiness to the maximum number for the maximum time is our religion." This is the Mission's motto.

Chinmaya Mission has 243 centres in India and around the world, which organize and coordinate the activities of the Mission in their area. After the mahasamadhi of Swami Chinmayananda in 1993, Swami Tejomayananda became the head of Chinmaya Mission. He is the chairman of Central Chinmaya Mission Trust (CCMT), which is the apex body running the Mission. The headquarters of CCMT is in Mumbai, India.


Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide

In an era rife with skepticism and confusion about matters spiritual, Swami Swaroopananda is a rare voice that blends authenticity with accessibility; theory with self- practice; logic with heart.
Formerly the Regional Head of Chinmaya Mission Australia, United Kingdom, Middle East, Africa and Far East, and presently Chairman of the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth Trust (University for Sanskrit and Indic Traditions) and Director of the Chinmaya International Residential School in Coimbatore, South India, Swami Swaroopananda has now been bestowed by Swami Tejomayananda the privilege to also serve as the Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide.
Born and brought up in the bustling commercial capital of India, Swamiji had always been convinced that beyond life’s superficial, everyday joys and sorrows, there was something more enduring and satisfying. As a child he heard from his grandmother many religious stories based on the great Indian epics and the history of saints. These stories suddenly came to life, acquiring new meaning and depth, when as an adolescent he encountered the preeminent Master of Vedanta, Swami Chinmayananda.
His heart completely moved and inspired, in 1984 Swami Swaroopananda gave up his family's thriving business in Hong Kong to undergo intensive training under Swami Chinmayananda and Swami Tejomayananda at Sandeepany, Mumbai. He was initiated into the monastic order in 1992. Since then, he has touched thousands of lives across the world, and his tremendous work in bringing out the essential wisdom and underlying unity of all religions has garnered him a place among the vanguards of self-development philosophy.
Swamiji has authored several commentaries on such important spiritual classics as Ik Onkar, Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra and Sankat Mochan, besides numerous books on contemporary lifestyle subjects such as Simplicity and Meditation, Storm to Perform, Avatar, Managing the Manager and Journey into Health.
Swamiji is equally adept at conducting ‘whowalistic management’ seminars for senior corporate executives. Among the well-known institutes he has been invited to speak at are The Ford, London Business School and Harvard University, to name a few. In fact, a proprietary self-development course he conceived and initially conducted, Make It Happen™, has been adapted and integrated into the human resource training programmes of various corporate organizations in India and beyond.
